Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 60175
RunWM *should* try /etc/X11/AnotherLevel/fvwm2rc.m4
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:40:30 EDT
Description of Problem:
Since 7.2 the /usr/X11R6/bin/RunWM script doesn't try to use
While it is true that RHL doesn't ship AnotherLevel since 7.0, many people
install it from previous versions, since this is the desktop they are accustomed to.
And the reference /etc/X11/AnotherLevel/fvwm2rc.m4 is harmless -- if the file
isn't there, nothing happens.
Please, please, please -- not everybody in the world runs Gnome/KDE.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fvwm2
2. Install AnotherLevel package from any previous release (e.g. 6.2)
3. Try startx `which RunWM.MWM`
Just fvwm2 in default configuration is started.
AnotherLevel with MWM interface.

Patch for RunWM to pick AnotherLevel's config file
I don't have the time currently for working on such enhancement requests,
however I will defer this for future consideration.
Thanks for the suggestion.
xinitrc now provides a new mechanism for 3rd party windowmanager rpms
to drop files into. Xclients.d in rawhide. RunWM is obsolete and
will be removed in Fedora Core 4 or 5.
Oka-a-ay... I'll look into this mechanism. Thanks.
